BDI–FastScreen measures the severity of depressive symptoms corresponding to the psychological, nonsomatic criteria for diagnosing major Depressive Disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders—Fourth Edition (DSM– IV).
Isolates Depressive Symptoms
Reflecting the cognitive and affective symptoms of depression, BDI–FastScreen is a quick and effective way to quantify depression, while excluding symptoms that might be related to medical problems. This test was developed specifically for evaluating depression in patients whose behavioral and somatic symptoms attributable to biological, medical, alcohol and/or substance abuse problems may confound diagnosis.
